Morning Skin Care Routine

What is your morning skin care routine?  Mine is fairly simple but it works for me. First of all, I have combination skin type which is oily around the T-zone and dry on the cheeks.  My main skin concerns are dark circles/fine lines under my eyes, uneven skin tone, and lack of hydration.  Sounds familiar?  I've tried many different skincare products over the years and yet nothing really worked for me (except for the Olay Complete) until I tried the skin care products by L'Occitane en Provence. 

First, I use Immortelle Brightening Cleansing foam from L'Occitane to clean my face in the morning.  This cleansing foam contains organic immortelle floral water and you only need to use a very small amount each time.  It creates such a thick foam that one pump is enough to wash the entire face.  My face feels so fresh and clean and looks absolutely radiant and smooth.  

Then I pour a small amount of the Immortelle Brightening Water in a cotton pad and gently apply it all over my face and neck.  If I am not in a rush, I sometimes saturate a cotton pad with a little more than normal amount of brightening water and cover my T-zone with it.  I then leave it on for 2 to 3 minutes.  It's like a mini facial in the morning.  This brightening water is rich in Vitamin C and it also contains Bellis Perennis extract.  My face glows after each use.  

Then I tackle my eye area.  I have dark circles under my eyes.  I've tried numerous eye cream/gel in the past but nothing really works for me.  But I noticed a big difference after I used this L'Occitane Divine Eye the first time.  The fine lines and dark circles under my eyes were visibly reduced.  The price is quite reasonable considered it works wonder for me. 

I've been a fan of Olay since I was a little kid.  Now, three generations in my family is using Olay Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid.  It's nothing fancy and it's affordable. It absorts right into my skin and it is not greasy at all.  All you need is a little dab and it goes a long way.  

I protect my lips with Burt's Bees Beewax Lip Balm.  This lip balm is 100% natural and contains ingredients like ultra-emollient lanolin, sunflower oil, coconut oil and beewax.  It glides on smoothly and is long lasting.  I have a tube car, my purse, my nightstand, and my desk at work.
